"The first card is your past," the vixen said, turning over a tattered card. She spoke as she traced the stroke of lightning along the top. "The tower. Difficult times, sudden change. An upheaval in your life? A new revelation?" The darkness of the room stifled your voice; you could only nod. "The hanged man," she murmured as she turned over the second card. "Being true to ...more
